Ramath of the south

Ramath of the south [S]

(Heb. Ramath-negeb). The Heb. negeb is the general designation for south or south-west of Judah. This was one of the towns of Simeon ( Joshua 19:8 ). It is the same as "south Ramoth" ( 1 Samuel 30:27 ; RSV, "Ramoth of the south"). Its site is doubtful. Some have thought it another name for Baalath-beer.
